Yocto Project Status WW17`21

Stephen Jolley

Current Dev Position: YP 3.4 M1

Next Deadline: 7th June 2021 YP 3.4 M1 build


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.1.7 was released.
  • Patches are now flowing into master for 3.4 for M1 which is now undergoing active development.
  • We added automated yocto-check-layer testing to the YP autobuilder for key project layers which include meta-openembedded and meta-virtualization as well as member layers. The aim is to ensure key project layers interoperate well with each other and we’d like to thank the layer maintainers who’ve helped ensure these layers started passing tests.
  • Libseccomp has moved to OE-Core due to its widespread use and becoming a hard requirement for some software. As such its now in the default DISTRO_FEATURES.
  • There is a potentially controversial proposal to add opengl to the default DISTRO_FEATURES as part of the move to wayland rather than X11 Xserver based systems which people may wish to review carefully.
  • Elections for the two OE positions on the YP TSC are ongoing on the openembedded-members list. Please contact the OE board if you are not a member but would like to be.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and are now at a record high level. You  can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT

We are working to identify the load pattern on the infrastructure that seems to trigger these.
